Our wonderful Junior Road Safety Officers were presenting at the annual JRSO meeting today. They were all super excited and presented beautifully. They talked about why they wanted to be JRSO's, what they have learnt so far, what they have enjoyed, what it takes to be a good JRSO and why it is important to be safe on the roads.
They then had a Quiz to test their knowledge of Road Safety.
The JRSO's learnt even more about Road Safety and how to cross roads safety.
St Johns Ambulance taught the children how to save someones life. A very valuable skill. All the JRSO's were brilliant at CPR and remembered each stage correctly.
The JRSO's also got to meet their community PCSO's. They learnt all about their role in our community and the hardwork they do. They were even lucky enough to sit in the Police car and put the sirens on!
What an incredible job they have had! Da iawn to our JRSO's you did Birchgrove Primary School and everyone so proud today. You are true Birchgrove Stars. Da iawn!!!

As Road Safety is so important the year 6 JRSO's wanted to include photos of their Cycling Proficiency Week. This week the children were taught how to ride a bike safely as well as correct bike maintenance. They learnt a variety of manoeuvres including starting off, slowing down, stopping and parking, turning right and left, overtaking parked cars, passing side roads and carrying out emergency stops safely. They also learnt about different cycle routes available and had a practical aspect where they were tested on the relevant sections of the highway code. It was an amazing week had by all.
